Design

BDSM.com and ALT.com have much in common, including interface similarities, guidelines, censorship rules, interaction methods, incentives, prices and type of community.

Account Restrictions

The free account provided for users is very limited. You’re limited to reading the site’s magazine and browsing with almost no access to other member profiles.

PageSpeed Score

The site has a PageSpeed score of 10 out of 100. This is really poor, for a site of that caliber. A lot of performance improvements and optimizations are missing. There are issues with CSS and JavaScript code optimizations and also server loading issues.

Mobile Friendly Test

The site is easy to use on mobile devices and tablets. It has been optimized for display and layout issues. It is identified as mobile-friendly by Google mobile-friendly test.

Media Endorsement

There wasn't any news about BDSM.com but most of the kinky dating sites reviews always mentioned it. It seems like a fan favorite among people into fetish dating.

Pricing

With the free membership you can browse, upload pictures, hotlist your favorite members. You can only message people who've already contacted you first - and they have to be paid up.

With the paid membership plan, you get access to advanced features such as viewing members' videos, searching by location/distance and saving previous searches. Without a paid membership your ability to contact others is quite tightly restricted. You can wait and see who'll notice your profile, or just opt for an upgrade to premium and start messaging others right away.

Features

  • The Hotlist feature works just like "favorites", as members can follow interesting profiles they would like to visit later on, or connect to them.
  • The Cupid Report feature lets members see who they match with, not unlike the New Member Matches feature.
  • The Who's Viewing Me option shows you who has been viewing your page, as well as whose page you have viewed (this feature can be turned off).
  • Members can broadcast live videos and webcam. However, Mac users must download a program to stream videos. Members can interact in the Friend Network & Private Chatrooms, and send Voice Messages as well as videos.
  • Private Chatrooms are created for specific BDSM desires and are moderated and constantly monitored to keep people who break the rules out of the room.
  • Members can host their own blog within the site and get access to the site's custom magazines, as well as access to their large collection of BDSM and fetish videos.

BDSM.com has an Alexa global rank of 209,096. The Alexa rank in Canada is 11,256.

Customer Service

The site also provides 24/7 phone support for any member experiencing issues (apparently this line is not the most helpful, as some users complained). You can also send feedback on the feedback form page.

Privacy & Security

The site is encrypted using HTTPS (HTTP Secure), a secure way of transferring data on the internet.

BDSM.com cares about its reputation and guarantees full private information protection. Children under 18 years can’t sign in and enter the website, nor can they create accounts.
